"It's been several weeks since I rode my bike and I was okay with that...until I my BGDB jersey came in the mail yesterday. All of a sudden I had an urge to ride! So, I cancelled my plans this morning and hit the pavement to rep BGDB in the Inland Empire. 25 miles later, I feel GOOD! I needed that ride. Have a great day everyone." ‪#‎BGDBLA‬ ‪#‎BGDB‬

Happy New Year BGDB members! I've been inspired since joining this group in the Fall 2013 - I'd just started biking again after a long hiatus. I'm really proud of myself having done my first little 2-day mini tour over New Years. I've been wanting to get back into touring and decided that I just needed to do what I could with the resources I currently have (you really don't need much). Here's a photo of me heading out. I've also attached a video link of my little trip. https://vimeo.com/8347016

The exclamations were unbelievable! ”This is the best day of my life”, “I thought this was going to be boring, but this is amazing”, and “I love this!” They left the camp with a sense of belonging, accomplishment, pride, and hunger for more. I never thought this was possible from those timid faces. http://littlebellas.com/

This picture is from Pedal Pittsburgh. I rode the 25 mile route and had a blast. Although I was "by myself" (hubby took on the century route and I didn't know anyone on the ride), I was never alone no matter how fast or slow I biked. There were people of all ages and sizes, beginners and experts. Will you join us next year?

"I’ve loved bicycling ever since my childhood. My favorite though is solo bicycle touring. It feels like true freedom to me to be able to load my bike with everything that I need for a day, weekend or week, and push off under my own steam to explore the world. Even though I ride regularly these days, it has been years since I have toured. Now entering my 50th decade, I’m ready to ‘get on the ball’ and start again!"

"This is my bike. There are many like it, but this one is mine." My first legit bike since I was a kid. I plan to give her some company real soon. Maybe an Elektra Townie or a cool road bike. I often stop to take pictures when I ride. That's my zen.
